T his cover design highlights the wildlife and seasonal influence of Dublin, bringing forward these characters in urban space against a background of wintry environs. This piece aims to remind us of the non-human elements around us and the impact we make on the environment and animal life. Visually, the reduced palette of winter – sparse, pale, a strong contrast between bright and dark – is used to portray a quieter and more introspective time of year as well.
I am a graphic designer, illustrator, and multidisciplinary artist based in Dublin, originally from San Francisco. My artwork explores enmeshed narratives of folklore, science fiction, fantasy, and the natural world. I currently work both in-house and freelance across multiple local design and marketing teams.
